Report: RGIII Benched, Colt McCoy To Start Against Indianapolis

Earlier today it seemed Jay Gruden really wanted to bench Robert Griffin III, and according to a report from Adam Schefter (and confirmed by Mike Jones), he's finally done it. Schefter, citing a team source, says that Colt McCoy will be Washington's starting quarterback when they take on Indianapolis on Sunday, not… » 11/25/14 11:29pm Yesterday 11:29pm

Steph Curry Goes Bananas, Drops 40 Points On The Heat

Steph Curry against-the-world games are the most fun you can have watching basketball. Whether it is 54 points against the Knicks in Madison Square Garden, whomping the Denver Nuggets in the playoffs, or some random January game, nothing is better than watching Curry fire on all cylinders. His array of tricky… » 11/25/14 10:58pm Yesterday 10:58pm

John Klingberg Scores Knuckling Goal From The Neutral Zone

The Dallas Stars defenseman scored this thunderous goal to take a 1-0 lead over the Oilers in the first period tonight. If you look closely at about 27 seconds, you can see that the puck is actually on its side when Klingberg slaps it. This leads the puck to move much like a knuckleball would, and fool Oilers goalie … » 11/25/14 9:40pm Yesterday 9:40pm

High School Team's Game-Winning Drive Kept Alive By Immaculate Reception

This happened last Friday in a playoff game between Louisville Central and Corbin High in Louisville, Ky. Louisville Central beat Corbin 36-33 thanks to two fourth-quarter touchdowns, the second of which was precipitated by this insanely fortunate catch. This may not quite live up to the original Immaculate Reception,… » 11/25/14 6:26pm Yesterday 6:26pm

Richard Sherman Mocks NFL With Brilliant Press-Conference Performance

This is so good. At his weekly meeting with the press, Seahawks corner Richard Sherman, a cardboard cutout of Doug Baldwin, and the disembodied voice of actual Doug Baldwin teamed up for a skit that took shots at the money-hungry NFL and stood up for teammate Marshawn Lynch, who was fined $100,000 for failing to talk… » 11/25/14 4:31pm Yesterday 4:31pm

Players' Tribune Boss Says Tiger Woods Isn't Being Defensive, You Are

Last week, we and many other people made fun of Tiger Woods for revealing himself to be a hollow replicant by "writing" what he imagined to be a scathing takedown of Dan Jenkins's satirical and clearly fake interview with Woods. Now, the editorial director of The Players' Tribune, Gary Hoenig, is out here talking to… » 11/25/14 4:07pm Yesterday 4:07pm

Never Mind That Last-Minute $37M Doha Paid To Win The IAAF Championships

Last week, Doha, Qatar was named the host city for the 2019 IAAF Track and Field World Championships, beating out Eugene, Oregon, and Barcelona, Spain. Now it emerges that the Doha bid offered up about $37 million in "incentives" in the minutes before the vote, and the IAAF wants everyone to know there's nothing wrong… » 11/25/14 3:50pm Yesterday 3:50pm

No, Iran Is Not An Apocalyptic Nuclear Cult

Yesterday, negotiations over Iran's nuclear program failed to meet the deadline. Talks have been extended, but already an emerging chorus of "I told you so" says that it's pointless to negotiate with a fanatical religious regime that views nuclear war as holy martyrdom. It's time to put this myth to rest. » 11/25/14 3:42pm Yesterday 3:42pm

Dice-K To Return To Japan, Take His Mythical Gyroball With Him

After six seasons with the Red Sox and two with the Mets, Daisuke Matsuzaka is apparently returning to Japan, considering a contract with the defending champion Fukuoka Softbank Hawks. He'll always be remembered for the hype, and for his unhittable pitch that in reality is all but unthrowable. » 11/25/14 2:41pm Yesterday 2:41pm

Killer Mike's St. Louis Blues: Live From Tuesday's Run The Jewels Show

Fires, gas masks, rocks, riot gear, gunfire, smoke pouring out of the smashed windows of an Advance Auto Parts ... everyone saw last night's news, and many St. Louisans were wary of becoming part of it. But following a grand jury's decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of… » 11/25/14 2:30pm Yesterday 2:30pm

Man, Jay Gruden Really Wants To Bench RGIII

Last week, Washington coach Jay Gruden apparently won the power struggle with his quarterback for Dan Snyder's favor. On Sunday, Griffin kept the Skins in the game; he didn't do anything particularly well, but he didn't do anything egregious enough to warrant being benched for Colt McCoy. He'd better keep that up,… » 11/25/14 2:19pm Yesterday 2:19pm

Dollar Shave Club Delivers You a Great Shave for a Few Bucks a Month

Thanks to a bunch of industry jargon which is made to confuse you about useless technology, razors are way overpriced. And to even get a razor in your hand, you have to go to the drugstore and track down the employee who hates unlocking the special razor case for you, just as much as you hate asking. But with Dollar… » 11/19/14 10:09am 11/19/14 10:09am
